Leo was a very good guide with a lot of information. The catacombs are a must!
Thank you very much! Enjoy your time in Rome.
Leo was most accommodating for us. She was very informative and spoke to our whole family of different ages, engaging us all. Truly appreciate her time.
Thank you Brooks. Engaging kids or teenagers is always a big challenge so I'm very happy to read your review.
She has interesting Stories to tell and you can see parts of the catacombs you wouldn’t see with a normal visit. It was amazing and I would definitely book again. Alexander
Thank you so much Alexander. I'm glad you enjoyed the visit. I would be happy to see you again in the catacombs or for another tour.
Our visit of the Cimetière Père Lachaise was fantastic! Leo is extremely knowledgeable about this place and history and, added to a very friendly personality, this made for the perfect mix to fully enjoy this visit. I highly recommend it and I highly recommend Leo as a guide. Her passion is contagious!
Thank you so much Kathy! I wish you all the best in the future.
